Our readers may have noticed that we’ve been producing and promoting a lot of shows this year. In the past we dabbled with showcases and occasional nights, but with our involvement in Market Hotel and its sister venue Trans-Pecos, we will be presenting roughly one or two shows a month for the foreseeable future. This past month, our guests were the phenomenally underappreciated Philly psych/garage outfit Spacin’. The nice part of producing your own shows is the ability to select the bands — and we were extremely pleased that Spacin’ accepted our invitation. We’ve been fans of the band for quite some time, going all the way back to a magical night at 285 Kent in 2013, and then again at Hopscotch later that year. And Spacin’ was everything that we’d hoped at Pecos. The set was a mix of material old and new, including two songs from the band’s 2016 album Total Freedom, the live debut performance of brand new “I Don’t Know What to Do About It”, and a cover of the 90s punk band Dead Moon. But details and descriptions aside, the best evidence of the phenomenal performance of Spacin’ is to just listen to this recording — its crackling with energy and authenticity. We said back in 2013 that we were never going to miss another Spacin’ show in NYC. And in 2016 we had to make it happen ourselves, and will hopefully get that chance again.

I recorded this set with the Schoeps cards at the front of the stage picking up the live sound from the band’s amps and mixed that with a fine board feed provided by house FOH Chris. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!
